The MP for Cannock Chase has been sacked a week after it emerged that he attended a Nazi themed stag party.

Aidan Burley, who was elected in 2010, was at a party in a French ski resort where one guest dressed up in SS uniform and others toasted senior Nazis including Hitler.

Mr Burley's behaviour was condemned but the Conservative party initially resisted calls to remove him from his position.

However he has now been sacked as a parliamentary private secretary (PPS) to Transport Secretary Justine Greening for "offensive" behaviour. His actions will also be investigated.

A Party spokesman said: "Aidan Burley has behaved in a manner which is offensive and foolish.

"In light of information received the Prime Minister has asked for a fuller investigation into the matter to be set up and to report to him."

The JC had been among those who called for him to step down in the wake of the scandal.

The Mail on Sunday reported this morning that Mr Burley had ordered the uniforms.
